Out with the old sheriff, Nottingham style.
Monday, 17 July:
For the last six months this site has pointed out how the Trump administration is not just opposed by a party out of power, but in a state of war with them. The constant referrences to Sun Tzu's treatise
'The Art of War' weren't made out of convenience.
They are serious benchmarks; always have been and those who ignore them lose.
You also know that the President likes to win. In Zen, 'winning' is about understanding loss, and taking
your lessons. You win by NOT losing, which comes from ignoring the inherent truths to human conduct.
Like in 'know your enemy'. The United States defeated North Vietnam militarily but lost politically because they didn't know their enemy. They just
assumed the tactics of the last war were good enough, and flooded a jungle with artillery pieces against ghosts who disappeared into the night.
Arrogance did them in, and the North, who were prepared to accept any casualty count to achieve the political
outcome they desired ultimately triumphed. We waged a war based on body counts, which meant nothing to them, and rolled with it.
The same thing holds true in civilian life; conflict through competition has many of the same similarities. Politics is
Donald Trump won the election because the DNC and the Clinton machine, arrogant beyond belief, ran from accountability of the mistakes of their leaders. Indeed, they doubled down on them.
To prevail in any conflict you have to know
your adversary, and also know yourself. They thought themselves above recrimination, and refused to make necessary changes. Think 'Debbie Wasserman/Schultz' for example.
Anyone that stupid, that clueless and that personally corrupt should
never have held such an important position. They thought -incorrectly- that they would somehow never lose power, never have to answer a question.
That every little plan carefully hatched would turn out just perfect. Now, even the less enlightened out
there sort of know things just don't work out that way. Thinking that somehow if you acquire enough power, you are free of consequences from your own actions.
This is a massive mistake. And the Dems, and their progressive masters, made them wholesale.
They ran a bad candidate, ran her badly, had no message, and more important discounted the opposition and ignored a large section of the country. Having the public witness her being dragged out of a fundraiser half dead didn't help much.
their opposition and thinking that a splendid tactic was a disaster.
Finally, the sheer arrogance coming from those who believe they simply have to 'be' in order to keep power made their Karma so damn bad the impossible occurred. Trump caught every
break, every arrow directed to him turned backwards and hit the attacker.
That included the Pope among others. Trump was bulletproof because the bullets fired at him were blanks fired by fools.
Everything stated above is TRUE. It may not
be kind, it is from an admittedly partisan perspective. But it's true. Knowing the truth sets you free, ignoring it is a path to oblivion.
So now, after six months of this most improbable of presidencies, what is 'true' is now a matter of concern
for the first time in a while. The media narrative has been, if not completely destroyed, sidetracked.
The voices of the political elite of the world are being roundly ignored.
The reaction to our Sunday post that urged Trump supporters to 'relax'
was huge, our most viewed article and given some lovely comments, our thanks to all. While (half) in jest, the overall point still stands.
It's OK to ignore the media when they knowingly lie to you. It's also just fine to make fun of them, to spear
them with the sanctimony they display even when caught red handed.
They're reactions are so damn juvenile that it is sort of tough NOT to give them a hard time. Maybe when the Time Warner acquisition of CNN happens, and they fire that officious goon
Jeff Zucker, they can return to being the sin qua non of world event coverage.
They were, once.
The final salvo, as this site called, it, has pretty much run out of gas. The stockpile of 'leakable' material is getting thin; that explains
the big push on the Trump Jr tale. It is a weak story anyway, and finding out that the same people Junior met with were all over Capitol Hill that week sort of takes the 'spy' out of spy story.
There will be more, but it's not going to amount to much.
You will hear about the 25th Amendment nonsense, but that's all that is, nonsense. The 'Emoluments Clause' will have some traction.
Many lawsuits will be filed. But believing that Trump would shape government policy because somebody paid $800 a night
to stay at his hotel is pretty silly. No, this won't go anywhere either.
Instead, Trump will start to get his house in order. The Democrats will continue the glacial pace of confirmations, and are just stupid enough to commit political suicide with
the 'resistance' movement.
To think they can win congress back by refusing to do their jobs because they didn't like the election results borders on the ridiculous. They have to at least appear to govern.
No, the president will
start getting his revenge. Revenge, as the saying goes, can come in many ways. It is a dish best served cold, the French are right.
Immigration has been a very successful policy for Trump. It's across the board popular, and tying that to the sanctuary
cities, and to stripping funds from them is on the table.
Want to get back at any progressive? Take their funding away. They don't know how to really earn anything, have no back up street skills, so this makes them panic. Guess what?
coming, folks. Just be patient.
For you see, the Trump offensive is about to begin. The deep state leaks to the media have pretty much run their course, unless they have the photos of the hookers in the Russian hotel courtesy Christopher Steele.
Wouldn't count on it, though. And deep in the polling one overarching fact was gleaned: Of all those who voted for Trump, from committed to casual, he's holding on to them with iron grip tenacity.
Sure it's only in the mid 40's. But rather be there
than at 20% like everyone else is. He's is in surprisingly good shape.
Now, let loose the Dogs of War. Get the opposition in front of investigative commitees. Deport every foreign national who commits crimes, no matter who or where they come from.
Keep the cease fire in Syria, which you NEVER hear about (wonder why) and have it become a basis for regional talks. Use Russia to triangulate Iran, which they would do in a heartbeat.
Get the GOP nitwits to do their damn jobs. Reform health care,
cut taxes, and strip regulations. Get Macron to commit to a real attempt to redo the Paris Accords and come up with a world agreement on fossil fuel reduction which isn't patent left wing nonsense.
Clean planet is good; without doubt. But be on the
right side of it for a change; not a backdoor excuse to install world socialist rule. Then start taking down the Jeff Bezos types.
Too many mega billionaires. This isn't what capitalism was meant to be. Enforce anti trust laws. Govern with respect to
those with the least power, but ignore the whores who feed off of their miseries.
Be strong, resolute and fair. There is a new sheriff in town. And for the first time in a long while, it's Matt Dillon of 'Gunsmoke'. Not the Sheriff of Nottingham.
Nor the corrupt drunk with a badge ready to 'blow Dodge' if any adversity arises. We've had too many of those. The time to make the move is NOW...
